Did anyone catch the super moon? Sadly, it was so over cast, I never soaked up the full impact of “the years biggest and brightest moon.” Insert sad face.
However, I did get a chance to catch up with some folks, share a few meals, and do a boat load of yard work which I’m finding is really helping me de-stress lately. I’m finding such satisfaction in spending an afternoon with the sun beaming down on my face with a pile of weeds growing larger as I work my way around the garden and yard. (My bestie even helped us break down a few fences)! There were solitary moments spent (unfortunately without a camera around) where I glimpsed butterflies and dragonflies gracefully swooping in the air around me which softened the irritating blow from the swarm of mosquitoes that apparently find me uber attractive. I am now sporting so many blotches and bites that my legs now resemble those of a young child who fell down and scraped her knees one too many times.
The bounty of nature never ceases to amaze me. Pink stargazer lilies to brighten my day,
despite an entire block of time filled with nothing but rain.
and even host a dinner of paella and kabobs for friends (brought to you in part by produce from our garden)
Lemons were on super sale this weekend so I baked up a lemon yogurt pound cake.
Lunch of papa rellena (a Peruvian dish of fried potato puff filled with meat, olives, and a hard boiled egg, served with salsa criolla).
And to cap off the weekend, I re watched one of my all time faves.
What was your favorite part of the weekend?
Your Squishy Monster ^.~
